Earlier this week, Sussex County Sheriff Jeff Christopher filed as a write-in candidate for that office in the November general election.
Christopher lost the primary race in September to newcomer Robert T. Lee, by 21 votes. An automatic recount was held by the Sussex County Department of Elections later that week, which found the 21-vote difference to be accurate.
Christopher could not be reached for comment by Coastal Point’s news deadline.
Christopher isn’t the only write-in candidate hoping to garner votes in November. He joins write-in candidates Walter Janocha and Carl Smink, who are both running for United States senator.
